Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), speaking at a press conference, about people protesting SB5, the Texas abortion bill.
"Rick Perry 2016: The Screaming Means It’s Working"
The thing about this quote is you can totally get at what he’s going for. Whenever I don’t have a firm opinion on a legislative proposal, I take to the Internets to see if the Rick Perry’s of the world are foaming at the mouth about it, and if they are, I take it to be a good idea.
It’s a very effective heuristic! But rarely does it sound so rape-y.
